He aha te mea nui o te ao What is the most important thing in the world?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata It is the people, it is the people, it is the people
(Māori proverb)

I enjoy empowering people to reach their goals and be the best that they can. Being able to achieve this with students is something I really enjoy in my role.

As a graduate of AUT, I can personally endorse the service we provide as it has been my own experience. I’ve found AUT to be a truly dynamic learning environment with values that benefit both students and staff.


My background is in communications and I graduated with a Bachelor of Communication Studies from AUT. I've worked on government community initiatives and for a national not-for-profit youth organisation within communications roles with a strong marketing and stakeholder engagement focus.

About me

I'm a born and bred Kiwi from a family of four siblings with a half Samoan mum and full Australian dad. I enjoy travelling, with Camp America being one of the best adventures I’ve ever had. I also enjoy sports and play as many as I can. When I'm not playing or watching sports, I'll be somewhere trying to strum a guitar tune or discovering new café brunch spots.
